Philippe Coutinho could head to Barcelona in January – as Liverpool have reportedly agreed to let him go.
Coutinho has reached an agreement with Kop bosses which allows him to leave for the Nou Camp as soon as the winter transfer window opens, according to reports in Spain.
The reported deal would only applicable if Barcelona come forward with a reasonable offer.
Liverpool turned down three bids for Coutinho in the summer, with the biggest in excess of £110million – which would have been a Premier League selling record.
In the latest reports from Mundo Deportivo , it is not specified what Liverpool would consider as a reasonable fee for Coutinho’s services.
The Brazilian has returned to Liverpool action over the past month after a mysterious injury ruled him out of action for the first four weeks of the season. He has scored in each of his past three outings for the Reds.
But they have only won once in the six competitive games that he has featured in this campaign.
Previous reports have suggested that Coutinho remains keen on a move to Barcelona and would be prepared to relocate to Catalonia in January.
